Yeah.. I don't think you should try to stand up a sushi menorah.. Very Happy

I hear ya.. So, donut holes instead of sushi..

If you want a standing menorah, I'm too uncreative to think of one..


Oooooooooooooooooh! Donut holes are a good one! We love those! They come in black and white, so I'd pile up two white ones and top it with a licorice or something.
Great idea!

If you don't like jello, you can make mousse cups in shot glasses and a taller cup for the shamash!
Mousse cup could be vanilla,lotus or lemon!
Buy red licorice sticks for wicks!


Yeah, that's good! How do I make mousse, other than spray some whipped topping into a cup?

Clear plastic cups filled with candy with one thick pretzel rod dipped in white chocolate with red food coloring (or just dip in frosting) as a candle in each one


I like the pretzel part. The candy part - not so much.

two clear gloves standing up filled with popcorn is menorah. red popcorn for flame.

choco Wafer is base. stick in 8 skewers stacked with fruit loops & candy corn or cherry sours on top.

glass cylinders vases/or bottles filled with candy/or/choco/nuts lined up next to each others/ you can top with edible flowers or candy stuck into a skewer

I like to whip up the liquid whip.
Mix with lemon pie filling for lemon mousse cup, lotus cream for lotus mousse, melted chocolate for chocolate mousse.
Depending on how fancy you wsn tg it you can also decorate with crumbs or whip topping.
Kosher.com has a bunch of recipes(from simple to complicated!!)

OK how about marshmallows stuck on a skewer with candy corn?
Maybe a smore menorah (like a Graham cracker base with marshmallow on toothpick pasted down with some Fluff) and then extra ingredients on the side, roast over tealights.

This has become a "tradition" in my family - to have an edible, usually dessert-type menorah as the centerpiece for our chanuka party. It sits there throughout the meal to enhance the decor and then at the end of the meal, everyone grabs one. I'll share ideas of what I've done in the past, and I'm looking for more ideas so that we don't have a repeat (ch"v, oy the busha of that Can't Believe It lol)

1) 9 individual mini dessert cups filled till almost the top with pineapple chunks and then topped with pomegranate seeds. The center cup was placed higher than the rest.

2) Cannolis standing up filled with custard and topped with a red jellybean each.

3) Rectangular cookies with their edges dipped into chocolate and then orange sprinkles

4) Marshmallows on a toothpick stuck into a donut and topped with a candy corn


What creative ideas do you have?


Hi love all these ideas can I just ask how do you present the menorah is it on a stand or each 'candle' straight on the table?

Most of these went straight on the table. I think only the cannolis I placed on a tray because I was afraid of the custard dripping out.

What about a club roll (the long baguette) with mini franks n blanks skewered in? Cut the baguette lengthwise to keep it flat and make the candles as high as you want them with a couple of mini franks n blanks. Keep it warm in the oven until guests come.

We (when I say we I mean my DDIL & her kids) made a menorah made of tall glass vases. Each one was filled with a different color nosh (yeah, not my favorite idea but the presentation was very pretty). Then the paper goods were all colors of the rainbow (I think it was pastels). The whole effect was very impressive. This would be for a large crowd, but I guess you could use smaller vases. (I forget if the shamash was a taller vase or just propped on something.)
